Looking Forward to the New Year with In Home Elderly Care
The year 2016 is drawing to a close. With the upcoming New Year, it is time to reflect on the memories shared with our loved ones and consider some new resolutions for our future. Many people make New Year’s resolutions to lose weight and to exercise more. While these goals are great for aiming for a healthier lifestyle; we also need to focus on a happier and full heart as well.
Strengthening bonds with family and friends is a great way to feel love all year long. Taking the time to balance work and family life is one way to work toward a happier new year. Finding ways to appreciate the knowledge our elderly loved ones have gained over time can be a wonderful way to boost their sense of wellbeing and outlook on life. An elderly loved one might appreciate the gift of a new journal. Encourage them to write down their stories of their past and make the time to listen to these memories so these stories can be retold for generations to come.
Time together doesn’t have to be reserved only for holidays. Many families make it a point to make family time more of a priority. Plan to meet up for a family dinner at least once a month. A trusted caregiver can provide transportation to and from events or gatherings if family does not live nearby. If there is an elderly loved one with mobility issues, perhaps it would be a good idea to bring monthly or weekly visits to them instead of requiring them to leave their home.
A year’s end has always been the perfect opportunity to create a fresh step forward into the New Year. Many take this time to create achievable goals and work to reach full potential. Our goals don’t have to only be physical to be important. Take this New Year and fresh start to create more memories with those we love most and make that time together the most important part of each week
